Multi-functional models, one offering 42x optical zoom and one offering 60x optical zoom, the highest zoom ratio in COOLPIX history
A model equipped with a large 1/1.7-inch backside illumination CMOS sensor and a fast lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.8
TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of three new COOLPIX P-series models, the P600, P530, and P340. The COOLPIX P series is a line of multi-functional, high-performance compact digital cameras that enable full-scale photography.
The P600 and P530 are compact models equipped with high zoom-ratio lenses that support capture of a wide variety of scenes with a single camera. Despite being equipped with a 60x (up to 120x*1 with Dynamic Fine Zoom) optical zoom NIKKOR lens offering the highest zoom ratio in COOLPIX history with coverage of a broad range of angles of view, from the wide-angle 24mm to super-telephoto 1440mm (equivalent focal lengths in 35mm  format), the P600 is very compact. The NIKKOR lens built into the P600 is also the first COOLPIX lens for which a super ED lens element has been adopted for superior image quality. The P530 is equipped with a 42x (up to 84x*1 with Dynamic Fine Zoom) optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers a broad range of angles of view from wide-angle 24mm to super-telephoto 1000mm (equivalent focal lengths in 35mm  format), and a high-resolution, 3-inch, approximately 921k-dot TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle. New scene modes, Moon and Bird-watching, have been added to both of these models, allowing users to easily enjoy super-telephoto photography. In addition, these cameras are equipped with a high-performance lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function that offers camera shake compensation equivalent to a shutter speed 3.5-stops*2 faster and an Active option for effective reduction of blur caused by camera shake with recording of still images and movies. Offering faster AF and a shorter shooting time lag, these cameras ensure capture of the desired moment with quick and nimble focusing. On its own, each of these compact cameras is packed with advanced functions that support photography of a wide variety of scenes, from super-telephoto to wide-angle and macro photography.
The P340 features a simple, refined design, and its combination of a fast lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.8 and large, 1/1.7-inch backside illumination CMOS sensor achieves superior rendering characteristics. It is equipped with a 5x (up to 10x*1 with Dynamic Fine Zoom) optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers the wide-angle 24mm to telephoto 120mm range of angles of view (equivalent focal lengths in 35mm  format) that also enables macro photography as close as 2 cm to the lens. It offers superior operation with adoption of a control ring around the lens barrel, to which a variety of functions can be assigned, and which can be used to fine-tune effects applied in scene modes and Special Effects mode.
In addition, the P600 and P340 offer built-in Wi-Fi® that can be used to easily transfer photos to a smart device for sharing with others*3. This allows users to enjoy connecting with others through their photos after they are taken.
